One of my favourite covers.

For anyone interested, an alternate mix of 'Rock And Roll Music ' with a different piano part was upped to YouTube last year; it's since been taken down but circulates in locations underground. 

I mention it as there is a discussion elsewhere on here about who played the piano and how it was added: live or overdubbed. Wiki writes

Sources have varied in crediting the piano on the track. The original Beatles For Sale  liner notes, by Derek Taylor, said that "George Martin joins John and Paul on one piano", implying an overdub by all three that was added after the basic take. In the 1988 book The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions, Mark Lewisohn described the recording as a single take with no overdubs, with "all The Beatles on their familiar instruments" and Martin on piano. The tape engineer for the session, Geoff Emerick, provided yet another account in his 2006 book; he recalled that McCartney played piano while Harrison covered on bass and that the only overdub was for double-tracking Lennon's vocal.

which surely places Taylor's account as being correct and at least two attempts at the piano were attempted.

I like this cover. A lot of energy.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.
